Taste of South End

Last night Laura and I went to my favorite foodie event: The Taste of the South End.  It's expensive but it has the best food ever! We started off with a mini disaster when I forgot my license in my car (that was valeted) because you need your ID.  But it ended up not being necessary when I told the check in person I accidentally left it in my car that was parked who knows where!

There were a lot of people there this year.  Last year I don't remember there being that many people, I didn't really have to get through a crowd to get samples.  This year we did.  But it was well worth it.  We had a definite favorite: the pork belly from Union (in the south end) I went back for more, it was so yummy! I also really loved the steak tartare from both The Butcher Shop and Gaslight.  And B&G Oysters had a really great fried oyster! I have never been to POPS but they had a yummy mini little chicken pot pie which had a really great flavor! Mistral had a really great foi gras (but they had the same exact thing last year, which seemed like lack of creativity to me) and someone also had ceviche on a little chip that was really good, but I can't remember who and someone had a really great mini little crab cake too.....And for dessert The South End Buttery had cupcakes with literally the most amazing butter cream frosting I've ever had.  We ate A LOT of food and it hit us both by the end, we were feeling a little queezy! But it was well worth it.  We'll be back next year for sure, maybe in a suit or a dress (people here were seriously dressed up!)
